100 % Muscat Petit Grains from a beautiful organic vineyard, fermented with wild yeasts, minimal SO2 is used. We sell this Moscato d'Asti because it's one of the best we've ever tasted – a wine with finesse and complexity; layers of apricot, peach, honey, balanced by clean lime-like acidity. Most of the competition is dull and insipid by comparison. The fact that this organic wine is made by some of the nicest people you can imagine has nothing to do with our selecting it for your delectation...

Friulano Galea I Clivi comes from old vines about 70 years old grown on the hills of Corno di Rosazzo along the Slovenian border. The marl here is calcareous with sandstone, with constant sun exposure. Matured 24 months on fine lees, always in stainless steel. This long maturation drives the wine aromatic expression to a deeper, more terroir-driven character. The 2019 offers a refreshing depth of oceanic flavors focused on salinity and minerality, with hints of anise, honey and almond.
A savory white from Tuscany, this Trebbiano and Malvasia blend is a clean lemon color in the glass. The nose has dried citrus peel, green herbs and chamomile, with a hint of spice and grassiness. Flavor-wise, the wine is warm, with apple and white pepper. There is a bitterness, like green tea, on the mid-palate before revealing a softness and richness on the finish. A substantial mouthfeel, this wine calls for heavily herbed roast chicken or pork, or even red meats.
This is a rare item: Clean, crisp dry Prosecco, made from organic fruit, indigenous yeasts, very low SO2. This is a wine that will please everyone – your inner wine geek, and your (here please fill in the blank for your friend or relative who pays no attention to the details but will guzzle it down and ask for more). An amazing value! Jamie Wolff
This wine is fresh and bright but has gained complexity with age to the point where it is competing with some of Italy’s best white wines. Aromatically fine and layered, with typical almond, a hint of white flowers, tarragon, fennel, and other green herbs it’s fairly full-bodied and shows no heat (at 13 degrees alcohol); the pleasing vinosity and richness is carried by quite pronounced saline mineralilty and lively hints of fresh lime. All in all this is a perfect moment for this lovely wine. Jamie WolffA truly fantastic wine. On the nose, there is a fresh nuttiness, accented by plush herbs, white blossoms, clementines and apricot. Flavors are generous, and the mouthfeel defies the wine's age. Lemons, orange pith, and zingy white minerals cling to an awesome, filling structure. Great acidity and a little tannin - you lick your gums after you sip it. Powerful wine, and an absolute stand-out at this price point.
Donna Rosa is a biodynamic Passerina del Frusinate IGT white wine. Produced in La Visciola family winery located in Lazio, central Italy, this wine is the result of the recovery of the Passerina del Frusinate autochthone grape variety, naturally grown and then made into wine. The attention to nature and traditional production gift us this excellent wine, genuine and with a character like Donna Rosa, the owner of the winery from which it gets the name. indigenious white varietals.
The Lombardo Gavi is a staple at Chambers. The 2020 has bright fruit of apricot and lemon, zesty minerality, and a medium mouthfeel. Even though there is a bit of weight on the palate, the wine also shows a touch of effervescence. A great bottle for anyone looking for a wine with ripe yellow fruits and a dynamic texture.
Crivella is made with fruit from Riccardo Bianco’s oldest vines, including some planted in the mid 1800s by Riccardo’s great-great-something grandfather; such old vines are extremely rare, and while they produce very little fruit, it’s impossible for Riccardo to even think about replacing them. At a tasting in the shop a customer said, “Like Sauternes with bubbles!” which was a lovely way to describe the wine and its rich and unctuous character. made lively with fizz, and crisp with balancing acidity. A great match with cheese or not-so-sweet desserts, like panetone, or fruit pies. While there’s no botrytis, Crivella is much more complex and detailed than all but the very best Sauternes. I’ve certainly never tasted anything like it — a stunning wine. Jamie Wolff
From the eastern facing, sandy slopes of the Grillo della Timpa Sicilia DOC, Fuedo Montoni delivers a refreshing but complex wine. 30 year old vines, planted at 700 meters above sea level, and handled under certified organic methods. Fermentation happens in cement, and for a portion of that time, the juice is in contact with the grape skins. The wine then ages in cement, in contact with the lees, for 6 months. The result is a complex, but utterly fresh glass of white. The color is clean lemon. The nose offers aromas of golden apple, pear, apricot and white flowers. Flavors are of dried lemon, green herbs, lime zest, salt and white pepper. The skin maceration definitely gives the wine a touch of tannic stability, like banisters to the wine's highly angled, persistent acidity. Really enjoyable wine that wakes up the palate.

There is so much going on in this glass. The color is a deep gold/yellow. The nose is heavy on apricot, zingy lemon, smoke, and salt. In addition, there is a pungent aroma of freshly picked wild flowers, stems included. So pronounced, so engaging. The palate has a similar character - lemon, yellow stone-fruits, sliced yellow cherries, and crushed white stones. The finish is long and herbaceous, with white pepper, lemon grass, and white tea. Structurally zippy, with a little tannic kiss, and medium acidity. Made from 60% Zibibbo and 40% Albanello grown on red sand and limestone soils. The fruit is co-fermented in concrete, with skin maceration for 2 weeks. Concrete aging for 8 months before being bottled unfiltered. If you're ever having a dull day, the energy in this bottle will wake you right up.
LDM Notes: 100% Pignoletto, spontaneous fermentation and aging in concrete tanks. Maceration can vary from hours to days. Aged six months on the lees. A chilled grape must from the same year is then added to the wine before bottling. No disgorgement so you can leave the wine on the lees as long as you like!" This is a supremely drinkable frizzante wine with a pleasing combination of fruit, minerality and some earth - sure to please fans of orange wine but light and refreshing enough to appeal to a wide audience.
The Posca Bianca from Orsi Vigneto San Vito is a unique and complex wine from Emilia-Romagna made using a solera system, or "vino perpetuo," where a combination of Pignoletto, Alionza, Albana and Malvasia are vinified, some with skin maceration and some without, in a mix of oak, cement, stainless steel and anfora vessels. These are then added to the master tank as each new vintage is bottled, which contains many past vintages of Posca. Federico Orsi explains that he only uses around 10% of the tank for each vintage, so there's always a good amount of older wine with a fresh injection of young wine each year. The result is a fascinating white wine that's not quite in the "orange wine" spectrum but has lots of texture and depth, while retaining crisp acidity and prominent minerality. Fun fact - the name "Posca" refers to the daily ration of wine once given to Roman soldiers.
This is the best skin-contact wine I’ve tasted in a long time - this might seem like faint praise, but I assure you: this wine is spectacular. Just one day of maceration with the skins lends it distinctly orange wine character, but anyone who thinks they don’t care for skin-contact white will likely change their mind with Solfare. For one thing it’s fresh and clean – no weird mousiness, etc. For another it’s a living text book example of terroir and minerality, showing intense chalk and saline aromas and flavors, with added complexity from savory herbs and resin, and fruit that echoes ripe Chenin Blanc. The wine is very brisky and juicy, wound together with bracing acidity. A brilliant wine and a great addition to the best wines of Sicily. Jamie Wolff // LDM Notes: "Grillo and Catarratto are destemmed, macerated for one day then fermented and aged half in steel and half in French oak barrels. About 5% of the blend comes from aromatic white grapes Giuseppe does not know the name of...The grapes for this wine come from the Contrada Torre di Salto d'Angio from vines that are over 40 years old in pergola training (converted from albarello). The contrada is at about 500m elevation."
A fresh and crisp Grecanico, and in true Sicilian style, very versatile at table, matching beautifully with black bean soup, spaghetti with tomato sauce, and grilled salmon with salsa verde. It turns out that Grecanico Dorato (the grape used here) is closely related to Garganega (the grape used in Soave), but this news surprised me because the wine is so much more exciting than 99.9% of Soave. At 12.5° alcohol, it is light and crystalline, with aromatics that made me think of exotic, gewurz-type fruit – lychee, pineapple, warm spices, all with an intense chalky / mineral foundation and racy, lemony acidity. From 30+ year-old vines, fermented in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts. Quite a remarkable and complex wine that far out-performs its price. -JW
This is an orange wine made from late-harvest Pinot Grigio, which is fermented on its skins for about a month, gently pressed, and then raised on the lees for an additional 23 months. However, because Pinot Grigio has much more pigment in the skins than other white grapes, the extended skin contact causes it to look and drink like a very light red wine. A beautiful salmon color in the glass, the nose opens with notes of tropical red fruit and guava, as well as mandarin orange, a hint of red berry fruit, and spice. The palate shows more citrus, with blood orange, ruby red grapefruit, grapefruit peel and more pungent spice. Very well integrated but significant tannins coupled with great acidity.
Friuliano grape. Vinified and aged in steel.
If you love Soave, this is the wine for you without paying the premium of the famous place name! Located about a 15 minute drive from Soave are the volcanic hills of Gambellara. Davide Vignato was the first winemaker to be certified organic and practicing biodynamic in this DOC. Made from 100% Garganega, the same grape as Soave, "El Gian" is named after the winemaker’s father who planted the vines 25 years ago in these rolling hills using the traditional pergola system. The wine is made in stainless steel tanks and rests on the lees for five months before being bottled. Straw yellow in color, it has both fruity and floral aromas, good minerality and acidity, and is savory with a hint of spice and citrus. Perfect with a meaty white fish, chicken or even a quiche at brunch!
